Weaknesses: 1 pc unsealed crank. Bars easaly bend, seats weak big and heavy, forks are heavy,rims arent strong enough,tires are thin,grips are cheap,seat post is crap,chainwheel is big, thin and bends easy,cheap brake cables
Great beginner-intermediat complete bike but a few week parts. Not good for strong riding.
A great bike for pro riders my favorite bike haro has ever made but you might want to buy a new crank but other then that the bike is great this bike has a very strong frame and has a great look it is great.
Weaknesses: Im not that confident in the crank,and the seat is horribly made.A little heavy but It makes it up in extreme durability.
Ive had this bike for a year and a couple of months and the only thing I've broke has been the plastic chain guard which I didnt like anyway.This bike I would definatly recommend.Has been a great bike and hope to get a 3-piece crank soon too hopefully.I think this bike is best for beginner to intermediate riders,experienced riders will definatly need to upgrane the crank to a 3-piece,but other than that it is a very good bike.
Bike Setup: Stock with Haro Landing pad seat and no chain guard.

Strengths: Strong frame, Comes stock with good rims, spokes, hubs. Tyres also last a long time. The stem has given me no problems either.
Weaknesses: The handel bars strip easily, The front forks are fairly weak for someone with my riding style.(Go big crash hard). The seat only lasted about a week. other than those three items the bike holds up well.
The cozmo worked well,but after a while my riding style got to much for the stock parts I mentioned in the weakness section. The bike is great for an intermediat rider but I would no recomened it for a more skilled rider or for someone who crashes alot.
Suxx. It was good till everything broke. Frame is easlily dinged, and the Rear dropouts and fork are weak. I bent the dropouts and turned the Axels into V's within a month. Bent the rim after 2 weeks. After 3 months I totaled the Handle bars on a measly 1 1/2 foot drop.
Good Trainer/Learner bike. But easly trashed and not worth the price I paid. (If the price got slashed in half it would be worth it)
Very good bike for the price probably the best deal you can get for the price. Good for mainly street but i do alot of dirt and it works fine. Get a 3-piece. For begginers to intermediate good for everything.

Strengths: The price when I bought it was pretty decent, the parts are quite good, good looking bike, and pretty durable!
Weaknesses: Only a 1piece crank, kinda heavy, but still pretty nice
Pretty amazing bike, although the new models are coming out I would still recommend getting this bike, because 1: it will be cheaper, (end of the year sales) and 2: it might be basically the same as Haro's new F-series.
I would try to get a 3 piece crank, it's not bad if you don't but is highly recommended, and try to unweigh your bike because it tends to feel quite heavy.
Other than that, as the previous reviewers had said, it's a good all-around bike, not too hefty on the wallet (especially nearing the end of 2002), and highly recommended for beginners to intermediate...
